Windows 2000/Active Directory Printing Services
Posted on 2003-02-19
I have a new Windows 2000 Server that I need to configure as a print server. We have about 15 printers on our network, most of them hooked up via JetDirect ports. I can run through the "Add Printer" wizard just fine, print a test page, etc from the server so I know that the communication between the server and the printer is fine.
Now here's the twist: When I try to add the new printers to the workstations (Add Printer -> Network Printer -> Server-Printer), sometimes they show up under the server name, sometimes they dont. Its an "all or nothing" thing, also - I can either see all the printers on the new server or none of them.
On the workstations that CAN see the new printers, they install correctly and print just fine.
Any suggestions as to why it would show on some PCs and not others when I try to browse to them?
(Side note: I also tried connecting to the server directly and get a "The referenced account is locked out and cannot be logged onto" error message on the machines that CANNOT see the new printers...)
